    Happening Now! Virtual Career Fair and Workshops

    Goodwill’s third annual virtual career fair, is open to job seekers now, and features employers with cross-continent footprints, including Cintas, Dell, C&K, Brickman, RCS, and The University of Phoenix. The virtual career fair uses Intercall, Inc.’s virtual conferencing platform, enabling job seekers to meet with employers and apply for jobs from anywhere.

    “Now more than ever, people in communities across the nation are seeking jobs that will ultimately change their lives and change futures. This is a great opportunity for employers as well as for workers,” said Gibbons.

    Also during the Virtual Career Fair, Accenture* experts will present three value-packed workshops with quick tips to help job seekers build knowledge and confidence. The free, 20-minute workshops, titles and times listed below,  are limited to the first 100 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.  Read more and register for the career fair.

    Monday, May 5, 1 – 1:20 p.m. EST, POLISHING YOUR RESUME  

    Tuesday, May 6, 11 – 11:20 a.m. EST, KEEPING CALM AND CONFIDENT IN INTERVIEWS

    Wednesday, May 7, 3 – 3:20 p.m. EST, SOCIAL MEDIA, NETWORKING AND WORK—WHAT ARE THE RULES? 

    “Certainly, for job seekers, the career fair opens up a greater avenue to find work. For employers, it offers the chance to refine recruiting strategies, expand candidate pools, and reach candidates who might not be able to attend an in-person fair,” Gibbons added.
